Paris Diaries

Cold, cold, bright, bright morning.

When we first arrived in Paris the bright morning sun was our alarm clock.  It would be 5 or 6 a.m. and the sun was already up in the sky, and it stayed up for a long, long time.

Then, it got dark early and stayed dark late into the morning.  There were mornings when the alarm clock went off and both of us knew for certain that it must have malfunctioned.  Nez went off to work while the street lamps were still on and Riot would peck away madly at the keyboard in a race against time and the awakening giant star in the sky.  It always proved to be an exciting battle with an intense urgency; this was Paris and there was no time to lose.

Then, all the sudden, it got bright early again.  At 8 a.m. (that’s early for Paris) it now looks like 11.  But spring is yet to come and winter is still here and the creeping cold morning air arriving through the window cracks announces that outside it was still just -6C (or, 21F).
